Ms. Ambler's Thanksgiving play
Mrs. Wittenberg's Thanksgiving play
We learned so much by the movies we watched, the books we listened to, but involving us in the play helped us learn even more about what Thanksgiving was about! We practiced, created our costumes, practiced more, and finally it was time to say our lines. The Native Americans and the Pilgrims all did a nice job. Our teachers were very proud of us! :)

Last week the firemen came into our classroom! They are teaching us so much about fire safety! They told us it is important to have our parents check the fire alarms twice a year and taught us what to do in case there was a fire in our house! We listened to different types of fire alarms so we are familiar with the noises they make! We love when the firemen come in!

So cool! We rocked around the clock in p.e. with Mr. Wloch and listened and sang Yackety Yackety, Don't Talk back with Mrs. Meiers. Records hung(we thought they were tires) above our table and we learned what life was like in the 1950's. In the afternoon we had math and literacy workstations all centered around our special day!

This week in Kindergarten we learned all about worms! We read Diary Of A Worm and wrote to our diary pretending to be a worm! What great writing skills we have! We also learned about real worms and got to touch and explore some. Our reading skill was "realism vs. fantasy" so we talked about real worms and made our very own fantasy worm. We also created a worm habitat and learned how they live underground and help the soil! Science is so much fun!
I like spider. Spider is my best friend and he will always be. Love, Aarian
P is for Pumpkin! Wow what fun we had investigating our pumpkins and learning a lot about math and science. At our first station we estimated what the circumference of our pumpkin was by deciding how much string it would take to go around our pumpkin. Then we measured to see if we were too long, too short, or just right. Our second wrkstation was seeing if our pumpkin would sink or float. Guess what, it floated! Yeah! Then we weighed ourselves and estimated how much our pumpkin weighed. Some of us tried lifting our pumpkin and it was pretty heavy! We looked inside and saw it was empty! Then the best station of all was when we grabbed seeds from the inside of the pumpkin and counted how many we could grab! Boy was it gooey and slimey!
